The new Smurf movie - called Smurfs: The Lost Village has at least one thing going for it: it's not a sequel to the two live-actions atrocities that came out in the recent years. This one should be fully animated, and hopefully it will be closer in spirit to the characters Peyo created. Here is a first taste of the Smurf reboot:
It doesn't look like it's going to be a very sophisticated film, but it's only a teaser, so we'll just wait and see. Here is the official synopsis:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!
Smurfs: The Lost Village will be out on April, 2017.
